Love is fickle--in real life and in Hollywood. Celebrity couples are constantly splitting and getting back together, attempting to make their relationships work. Many of those celebrity breakups helped give the couple some clarity. They were able to get back with their significant others and bring their love back to life. Many of them now have a lasting relationship. 

For others, who spent years in and out of the same relationship, like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, there was no happy ending. Eventually, the stars decided they weren't meant to be and finally went their separate ways for good.

Some people tend to go back to their ex because of the history they share with someone. For some celebrities like Cassie Ventura, calling it quits on her relationship with ex Diddy after having shared nearly a decade with him must have not been easy. But it turns out it was just what she needed in order to find the man of her dreams! Stars like Carlos Ponce and Karina Banda, on the other hand, couldn't stay away from each other. After a brief split in 2019, the couple went right back to each other and are trying to make things work. 

Love is not simple, and sometimes it takes a few tries to get it right. And sometimes you need to lose the one you love most to realize they're the ones that are meant for you. Other times, the distance helps you see that they're not the ones you need. Take a look at these on-again, off-again celebrity couples so you can feel a little less alone when it comes to relationship problems.
